How to make Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bagels:
I start with this homemade garlic lemon herb cream cheese, which I highly recommend, even though store-bought herb cream cheese would work just as well as a bagel spread.
Now on to the sweet mustard dill sauce—this sweet sauce works like magic with smoked salmon! It’s the perfect sweetness, tang and dill-y accent. It only takes 3 minutes to whip up and keeps in the fridge for weeks! If you’ve got extra, use them on your summer salads—it’s just a yummy dressing!
My favorite type of bagel is pumpernickel and that’s what I use here in this Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bagel. My bagel fillings are cucumbers, red onions, arugula, sliced apples and thinly sliced avocados.
These toppings are a perfect contrast of sweet, salty, crunchy, fresh, tangy and silky smooth. Paired with a sweet, healthy toasted Pumpernickel – simply divine! Next time you’re rushed to serve brunch/lunch for a crowd, pull up some of these easy breakfast bagels and you’ll never go back to the coffeeshop version!
